The Other Sullivan Brother's Happily Ever After...

The standalone follow-up novel (no cliffhanger) to the Sullivan Brothers "Nice Girl" serial trilogy that began the acclaimed New York Times, USA Today, and worldwide bestselling CAN'T RESIST series

Brian Sullivan has been in love twice in his lifetime. He lost his first love to early-onset Huntington's, and he lost the other more recently...to his brother. And somehow, his heart has managed to heal itself after both. Amazingly, without therapy. That doesn't mean Brian hasn't gotten more wary along the way, however. In fact, he's been thinking lately that maybe his brother's now retired nothing-but-flings rule isn't such a bad idea. Unfortunately, being the nice guy poster boy and all, he isn't exactly versed in the fine art of flings. So he looks to the outrageously 'unique,' provokingly button-pushing Tessa Daniels for a crash course.

There's absolutely no way he's falling in love with this one...right?

Tessa has no idea what she was thinking telling Brian that she was some sort of fling expert. She's never been flung before and she sure as heck doesn't know where or how to begin flinging a guy like Brian. It was a temporary lapse in sanity, really--no doubt because of the can't-help-but-fall-for-him brain fuzz that hits her whenever he's around. Not only does the man have her being more herself than she's ever been in her life, but he's the only person she knows who seems to have as many demons and skeletons in the closet as she does. What's more, he's got her thinking of the one thing she stopped letting herself even hope for years ago.

A happily ever after.

It took a few silent minutes of their walking from the trails back to the care facility lawn for Brian to finally notice all the deep, gouging scrapes and gashes slashed across her calves and thighs. “Shit, you’re bleeding. Come here, let me—”
She jumped back and gave him a look. Not a wary one but one that looked…confused. Out of sorts.
Maybe she’d hit her head when she fell.
“I’m fine.” She backed up again when he took another step forward.
There was that look again. Like she was expecting him to suddenly sprout a second or third head.
“Thanks for coming to my rescue back there, Brian. I really appreciate it. But really, you don’t have to do this ‘knight in shining armor’ thing. I’m good.”
He could see that. There wasn’t a single thing about the woman that cried out ‘damsel in distress,’ even given what could’ve happened to her back there. She wasn’t a leaf shaking in the wind over it, and it wasn’t because she was just made of tougher stuff either; he could see the weary, still-simmering terror in her eyes. She wasn’t over the situation by a long shot—she just appeared…acceptant of it. Simple as that.
And that intrigued him as much as it rankled. He remembered how devastated she’d looked at the wedding when she’d told him how she lost her sister to Huntington’s. He knew that devastation, knew exactly what that kind of loss did to a person. Simple acceptance was the last thing he’d expect from her.
The one thing he’d yet to be able to achieve himself.
“Why didn’t you scream?”
“What?” She looked up in surprise.
“When you fell, and when you saw the javelina—you didn’t scream. Not even a little. Why not?” He had to know.
Tessa blinked as if the question, and the reason, had never occurred to her. Her shoulder lifted and fell in a no-nonsense shrug as she said simply, “I didn’t think anyone would come.”
When she smothered a pained wince as she bent down to get her keys from her now tattered bag on the ground, he reached for her again, not wanting her to go with an intensity that stunned him.
